Twitter has taken off the muzzle that was the world before the social media revolution. Often prospects take a visit to one program – say how great it is – and name that place his leader… a few days later there is another trip, and yet another leader.
This was common place previously… but prospects were not able to vocalize their inner feelings to the entire world. Now that's possible, good or bad, because of Twitter.
We live in the world we live in.
Elisha Shaw lives in that world, too. He's also one of the top defensive linemen in the South. Shaw will get a lot of implied pressure to continue the Tucker-to-Georgia pipeline in February. Patrick Pass, Corey Robinson, Asher Allen and Josh Dawson (to name a few) moved from Tigers to Dawgs out of Tucker.
Losing a kid from Tucker to Alabama or Ole Miss would be a pretty big set back for Georgia. And make no mistake, signing or not signing Shaw will be a pretty good indicator of Chris Wilson's ability to recruit. Wilson was thrown into a relatively difficult situation with the transition away from Rodney Garner for the first time since the late 1990s in DeKalb County.
Shaw, simply because he goes to Tucker, is a gettable prospect. Now Georgia just has to go out and do it – which is increasingly easier said than done these days.
